Have a colorful day!

So…what is the Monday Poll?

Excellent question! It isn’t, contrary to its name, an actual poll, like with little clicky buttons. It’s just a list of five more or less random questions I’ve been posting on this blog every Monday morning for the past quadrillion years (since 2007). I love reading your answers, and it helps me get my week off to a good start.

1. How often do you exfoliate your face?

I try to do a gentle physical exfoliation daily with a washcloth and a cleanser in the morning, and then two or three times a week I’ll use a retinol-containing product at night.

2. What’s the most you’ve ever spent on a single skin care product?

It was on Skinceuticals C + E Ferulic Serum…which is $166 a pop for a teeny, tiny bottle.

So pricey, but it worked, especially on areas of inconsistent pigmentation. I haven’t used it in ages because of the price, though. I’ve been trying to find a less expensive alternative (saving for the Coywolf’s college and the house remodel got me all 🙀), but I’ve yet to find something comparable.

I might go back to it eventually…maybe after Connor graduates from grad school?!

3. Your top three skin care concerns right now?

Pigmentation, pimples and fine lines.

Those are my top three, but can I add a fourth? — ’cause if I can, dryness is also plaguing me at the moment.

4. List three skin care products you put on your face this morning.

  1. First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser
  2. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream
  3. Kate Somerville Anti Bac Clearing Lotion

5. Your best skin care advice?

Leave the pimple alone, girlfriend. The less you futz with it, the better off you’ll be!

❤❤❤Just a friendly reminder ❤❤❤

be patient with yourself

Hiya, friend. Good morning. I’m so happy to see you today. 😊 This week, BTW, is going to be a good — no, a great one!

I just realized that as of September (which is only two weeks away), we only have four more months till 2020.

Wow!

That’s crazy to me… This seems like a good time to consider how we’re going to wrap up 2019. If you’re exactly where you want to be in terms of your goals and wishes, that’s amazing! Give yourself a big hug and keep on keepin’ on. In my case, I still feel like I have a lot to accomplish before the year’s end, so every day this week, I’m going to chip away at just one of those things at a time.

My thing this week is clearing out a closet which has become a disorganized catch-all for everything, and I cannot — I JUST CAN’T — move into 2020 with it the way it is. So, every day this week, I’m going to spend 20 minutes cleaning and clearing it out.

I’ve been avoiding it for years, but it’s finally time, ya know?

How about you? What would you like to achieve before the end of 2019?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

Tabs wasn’t simply content being a seafood lover. He loved fish so much that he wanted to know everything about it. He wanted to know everything there was to know about fish because he loved it so much.

In fact, among his many careers, he was a sushi chef, a professional bass fisherman and bass fishing lure designer, a marine biologist, and he also starred, of course, in the hit Hollywood superhero movie Aquacat.

While studying for his dual degrees in fashion design and marine biology at the University of Novato, Tabs developed the world’s first SCUBCC (self-contained underwater breathing cat collar), but it hasn’t seen the light of day (yet) because there was some drama with the estate of Jacques Cousteau…

Hopefully we get it worked out one of these days because it’ll revolutionize undersea kitty exploration as we know it. 😊

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

North Korea is asking its young, middle-class women to give up international cosmetics and use products made in their own country. The cosmetics campaign comes as international trade restrictions tighten, and products made in other countries become even more difficult to get.

Pushing homegrown beauty has been a political goal since the days of the North’s first leader Kim Il Sung. But the effort has become stronger under his foreign-educated grandson, Kim Jong Un.

Recent defectors and North Korea experts say the campaign is having some success because of the popularity of South Korea’s K-beauty movement. The K-beauty movement uses products with natural ingredients that are plentiful in both Koreas.

But North Korea’s attempt to create K-beauty products of their own has met with some quality issues. Manufacturers also have difficulty importing the few foreign ingredients that cosmetics require.

Leader Kim Jong Un once dismissed North Korean beauty products, saying they make “raccoon eyes,” reported the Japan-based Choson Sinbo newspaper in 2015.

But Kim has since visited cosmetic factories several times with his wife to popularize the products.

Earlier this year, North Korea’s state-run television KRT showed a video about Pyongyang Cosmetics Factory. It showed a woman replacing Chanel products with North Korean products.

“Lots of foreign customers living in the state visit our shop,” Yang Su Jong told Reuters on a rare visit to the capital last year. She is a sales assistant at Pyongyang Cosmetics Factory.

Chanel, in response to Reuters’ questions, said it did not export products to North Korea. It suggested the products were illegal copies.

First lady and a girl band

North Korea has long controlled its peoples’ appearance.

Blue jeans and clothes with writing in English were banned under Kim’s father, Kim Jong Il. The closed country was trying to keep Western influences out.

But that has changed since Kim came to power in 2011. He and his wife, Ri Sol Ju, began making public appearances. Ri, a former musician, wore colorful clothing that appealed to a desire for self-expression, explained Nam Sung-wook. He is a professor of North Korean studies at Korea University.

“Kim Jong Un…gave rise to first lady Ri Sol Ju, who furthered the regime’s interest in cosmetics,” he said.

Kang Na-ra is one North Korean defector who said she used to buy South Korean cosmetics at private markets that help form the North’s informal market economy.

“I really wanted to copy (K-beauty) makeup…when I was in the North,” she said.

Today North Korean women are asked to wear the kind of clothing and makeup used by either the first lady, or the all-woman ‘Moranbong’ musical group. Moranbong is North Korea’s answer to South Korea’s popular K-pop music.

New markets and limits

Pyongyang Cosmetic Factory shipped some Unhasu brand cosmetics to a new store in Moscow in May, Russia media reported.

“Korean Care” is another Russian cosmetics shop selling South Korean products online. It started importing North Korean beauty products directly from Pyongyang last year.

The company targets Russian women and has more than 10,000 customers. It says the products are popular because of their natural ingredients.

“It was especially interesting because it’s North Korean,” said Margarita Kiselyova. She is a Russian customer who bought several products. “I am satisfied with the quality,” she added.

A major South Korean cosmetics company called Amorepacific tested 64 North Korean products. It found some had small amounts of harmful ingredients.

Amorepacific told Reuters it did not have additional details about the tests.

.- Pope Francis said Sunday that prayer in adoration of God and service to others spreads the fire of God’s love, changing the world one heart at a time.

“I invite everyone to discover the beauty of the prayer of adoration and to exercise it often,” Pope Francis said Aug. 18.

Adoration of God in prayer is necessary to allow the fire of love that Jesus brought to the earth to envelop our entire existence, the pope explained.

In his Angelus address, the pope reflected upon this Sunday’s Gospel from Luke in which Jesus says to his disciples, “I have come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already blazing!”

“These words are intended to help the disciples to abandon any attitude of laziness, apathy, indifference and closure to welcome the fire of God’s love; that love which, as Saint Paul reminds us, ‘has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit,’” Pope Francis said.

“Jesus reveals to his friends, and also to us, his most ardent desire: to bring to earth the fire of the Father’s love, which kindles life and through which man is saved,” he said.

The Gospel is a limitless fire that saves and changes the world beginning with a change inside the heart of each person, Francis said. For this, he explained, it is necessary to adore God and serve others.

“It is a question of not living in a hypocritical way, but of being willing to pay the price for coherent choices – this is the attitude that each of us should look for in life: consistency – paying the price to be consistent with the Gospel,” Pope Francis said.

“It is good to say that we are Christians, but above all we must be Christians in concrete situations, bearing witness to the Gospel which is essentially love for God and for our brothers,” he said.

Pope Francis pointed to the example of communities and groups of young people who dedicate their summers to service to others. The pope said that he admires those who devote themselves to the service of the sick, the poor, and people with disabilities.

“To live according to the spirit of the Gospel it is necessary that, in the face of ever new needs that are looming in the world, there are disciples of Christ who know how to respond with new initiatives of charity,” he said.

“May Mary Most Holy help us to let our hearts be purified by the fire brought by Jesus and to spread it with our lives through decisive and courageous choices,” Pope Francis said.

Snowfield singletrack: Mountain bikers find their slushy, slippery lines through a massive lingering snowfield on the slopes of Mount Guyot while riding the third stage of the six-day Breck Epic mountain bike race, Guyot.
Devon Balet / Breck Epic

BRECKENRIDGE — In its 11th year, this past week’s edition of the Breck Epic may just have been the most beautiful backdrop yet for the annual mountain bike race.

After a long winter and wet spring, Epic riders were greeted by a picturesque, green backdrop in Summit County. There also were the wildflowers lingering up high, in bloom later than normal. And during Sunday’s first stage of the race, torrential rain pummeled riders harder than in many veteran racers’ memories.

Then there was the avalanche debris and lingering snowfields on the slopes of Mount Guyot during Tuesday’s queen stage, one where a tribe of mountain goats watched racers go by. Then, through Friday’s final finish line, high-Alpine beauty was around every corner, especially during Thursday’s Wheeler stage.

Check out some of the best scenic shots below from Breck Epic photographers Devon Balet, Eddie Clark and Liam Doran.
